The Magic Circle

Hermetic Library fellow T Polyphilus reviews The Magic Circle : Its Successful Organization And Leadership [also] by Yaj Nomolos:

Yaj Nomolos' The Magic Circle from The Occult Emporium


This slender text, styled “an occult group leader’s handbook,” has some commonsense advice about organizing, in a hilarious, earthy style. It is addressed to ad hoc organizers, more than those operating within obligations to an existing order, but it is entertaining and thought-provoking regardless. Don’t let the Crowley misquotes and juvenile power-mongering put you off. It’s not pristine wisdom of the ancients, but it’s a fun, provocative read. [via]



The Hermetic Library Reading Room is an imaginary and speculative future reification of the library in the physical world, a place to experience a cabinet of curiosities offering a confabulation of curation, context and community that engages, archives and encourages a living Western Esoteric Tradition. If you would like to contribute to the Hermetic Library Reading Room, consider supporting the library or contact the librarian.
